Curriculum enrichment

Egyptians topic

Fernworthy Class have been learning all about The Egyptians as part of their topic work.  They celebrated the end of their topic with a special dance they had been learning.


This year pupils from St Mary’s have had the opportunity to work with the music department at Buckfast Abbey and join the Abbey choir as part of their Chorister programme.   This means a lot of hard work for the children involved but thanks to all their hard work and the extra music tuition they have received, they sound amazing!

Musical performances

Lots of children at St Mary’s have music lessons from peripatetic music teachers who work in St Mary’s to offer piano, guitar and drum tuition each week.  Some of these children performed for the rest of the school as part of our Achievement Assembly.

Fernworthy's Learning Afternoon

Pupils in Fernworthy held a special learning afternoon for parents/ carers to celebrate what they had learnt as part of their Egyptians topic.  The afternoon began with an Egyptian dance that the pupils had been learning in PE sessions and then parents/ carers were invited into class to share the learning that has taken place and also share some refreshments.

Handbell Ringing Workshop

Pupils in Burrator class took part in a workshop organised by a local hand bell group.  The children heard some music performed by the group but also had the chance to try handbell ringing for themselves.  Even the staff decided to join in!
